“I’m trying to keep it between, like you know, three or four nights a week,” Efron said.

Asked if he spent $2,000 at the club (a number reported by some outlets),  Efron said, “It was like $6 … I don’t think I opened my wallet.”

Said Efron: “It’s like how do you even start that conversation … it ‘s hard.”
